Miami Public Transportation Accident
Public transportation is often seen as an environmentally friendly and safe way to get to work and to get around town. While it is true that public transportation accidents are far rarer than car collisions in Miami and Florida, accidents involving public transit vehicles can and do occur. Worse, when they do occur it can be very difficult for plaintiffs to pursue action against regional transit authorities. These are often large entities that are protected by government agencies and it can be intimidating for the average layperson to launch a claim or to try to seek compensation from these groups.

Public transportation accidents can occur for a number of reasons, including:
- Incorrect maintenance of public transportation vehicles
- Defective vehicles or equipment
- Operator error or negligence
- Negligent hiring practices
- Incorrect training of operators or drivers
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence of illegal drugs
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Poor development of routes or transportation patterns
- Incorrect maintenance of city streets, railway tracks, and other infrastructure
In many cases, public transportation accidents are in fact preventable. If your accident was preventable and was caused by recklessness or negligence, you may have a claim under Florida law to seek compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and other costs related to your injuries.Traffic Accidents Can Be More Expensive Than You Think
